I am not kidding. The game Trauma Center : Under The Knife Is the most addicting, most hard and most well written game on the Ds to date.
The story is so original and so compelling, it is almost worth buying just for it. You are a docter who is a bit careless at first, but when a mysterios man made disease is spreading, it is up to you and your power to slow down time to cure your patents.
Lets get the bad stuff out of the way. Hmmmmm... No multiplayer? No, thats stupid. hm, i honestly can't think of a single thing wrong with this game.
The Great stuff is the the game is difficult. The challanging gameplay will have you coming back for more and dreaming about it at night. From removing tumors to fixing a heart, the game expects you to get the game down in the first few missions, and thankfully they will continue to drop hints during your game. This is a surgy sim on the DS< so expect to incise your patents, and fix them up fast due to a time limit.
This story doesnt stop there, for their are moving tumors abberviated as GUILT. their are seven of them that act as bosses in a way, and they all have a different way to be cured.
Once you are done, there is no replay value, so thats kinda bad, but packing 12 hours of gameplay is awesome. I guess we are just going to have to wait untill truama center 2

Very Good

Good but sometimes difficult

It is a glorified version of "operation" and is fun to do at times, coupled with the storyline, its a very good game. However, some operations are extremely difficult and you get thrown into some of them without any knowledge of what the heck you are supposed to do, and you usually have to repeat them several times to understand fully what you are supposed to do. Well worth a rent, I even decided to "Keep-it" as I knew it was going to take me awhile longer to finish it. So if you want to try it and are interested in the operation aspect of the game, this one was well worth it but be prepared for some challenges!

I'm a huge fan of the trauma center series. I played second opinion on wii and though it was great. I thought I'd try it on the DS. I was unaware of it, but it's basically the same game. I guess that's my fault for not knowing though...

Anyway, I thought the story line was good. It was understandable and easy to follow, but it was also balanced with a sense of suspense and curiosity. I was very pleased.

However, the graphics leave something to be desired. True, it is the DS and there's only so much that can be done. But this was stuff they could've controlled. When using the tools, the game suddenly became choppy and was accompanied by a terrible static noise when you use a tool like the scalpel. Not so great.

Besides that issue, it's a pretty good game. I'd say it's worth a rent.
